errr yes exactly.  i'm happy to disable the switch as you suggest, but
before i do i need the address of your business as my insurance company will
want to talk to you if, as a result of your advice, i knowingly disable a
safety-related feature of my car, and have an accident.

happy to do it, if you take your tongue out of your cheek and ante up.

YOU have the ability to disable your BL/WHT wire (put a switch in it), which
would take you less than 10 minutes on either car, and put up *your*
wrt locking and unlocking the rear diff in split u.  That's what I did, and
shared my exact experience wrt this paper and it's conclusions in split u
conditions, 7 years of them.  I haven't had to put 500degrees of steering
input into my locked rear diff yet, so I have a feeling that split u
conditions described might just happen as rarely as your experience with the
spider bite?

Tongue firmly in cheek, I encourage you Dave, to take a more active role in
btdt wrt all this documentation you've been reading.  In this case, it would
take you very little effort.
